CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT Adult Hits WHLK (106.5 THE LAKE)/CLEVELAND has tapped sister Country WGAR PD CHARLEY CONNOLLY to add the PD reins, filling the slot left vacant by the transfer of TONY MATTEO to the OM position at the company's WICHITA cluster on DECEMBER 1st.
CONNOLLY has served as PD at WGAR since 2010. He previously served as PD at WSM-F/NASHVILLE and KVIL/DALLAS.
OM KEITH ABRAMS tells ALL ACCESS that in addition to CONNOLLY's new duties, the station will be hiring an Executive Producer to partner with the new PD. THE LAKE is looking for an "out-of-the-box creative thinker" who can "make a radio brand come to life through creative and engaging imaging." The right candidate also needs "killer organizational skills, incredible attention to detail and excellent follow through.... with a strong knowledge of programming." Past experience is a "major plus," and production skills and NEXGEN knowledge would be "helpful." Rush an email with materials (sample writing, production, programming philosophy, whatever else would sell you to them) to firstname.lastname@example.org with "I WANT TO BE THE LAKE CAPTAIN" as your email subject.
